to this? >> well, we are -- i think the law enforcement personnel, the investigators are confident that the 19-year-old offender who's in the hospital was involved with the incidents on monday. as to whether or not there may be others involved, as i understand it we don't think there may be others at this point. but the investigators as they should are continuing to look into the matter. and authorities including myself are asking everyone to be vigilant but not fearful. to live our elives but keep our eyes open. if we see or hear of unusual activity to bring it forward. but the investigation continues, the arrest of this offender is a significant step, but we recognize we have a long way to go yet, candy. >> senator, that's the challenge, isn't it? to be not fearful but vigilant. sometimes the two of those are a bit mutually exclusive. how do you figure at future events in boston, take the boston marathon in next year, has this fundamentally changed the way you approach large events in that city or any other city? >> any time you have an event like this, candy, you need to learn f
thousands of law enforcement military personnel searching for this 19-year-old? >> well, they're working very hard obviously to find him. the question is whether or not he is still in the area. you have to do two three things. follow up on any leads they get based on tips, they're going to identify some locations where he might go to seek shelter -- family, friends, neighbors, that sort of thing -- then they'll look at the area they saw him last. that is the area of the shootout. they'll process the scene to see whether there is any blood evidence there that might actually be connected to somebody other than his brother. that would help them determine whether he is injured. >> his 26-year-old brother is now dead. we're told in the shootout with law enforcement he was discovered having explosive, an explosive vest almost like a suicide bomb vest. that's why there is so much concern that perhaps the younger brother, the 19-year-old who is still on the loose right now may also be wearing some sort of explosive device. that could be extremely dangerous. >> sure. that is the reason why they'r
system of justice. under u.s. law, the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions, and it is important to remember that since 9/11 we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> dzhokhar tsarnaev and his brother originally born in kyrgyzstan charged. tamerlan tsarnaev is dead after a shootout with police, dzhokhar has a gunshot wound to his neck after police apprehended him friday night. a source with firsthand knowledge of the investigation tells cnn that dzhokhar tar neve is on a breathing ventilator and heavily sedated. as we talk about the suspects' future, we cannot forget about those who lost their lives. let's take time to recall them, chris tell krystle campbell, 8-year-old martin richard whose mom and sister were greefsly wounded and 23 year ode linzie lu a boston university graduate student from china. and then of course m.i.t. officer gunned down, 26-year-old sean collier. we're told vice president biden will attend a memorial service for him on wednesday. as we mentioned, dzhokhar tsarnaev won't be charged as
was on lockdown. residents te residents terrified as law enforcement went door to door. this is one of the houses where police were combing through the neighborhood looking for the suspect. this is eddie beck's house. he took us through what it was like when s.w.a.t. teams came through here. >> they came in and searched the living room area, dining room, went through all of the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen area. >> searched cabinets and things like that? >> they didn't go through cabinets or anything like that but went through bedrooms and closet doors and made their way through the back here. >> reporter: beck shared his footage of the s.w.a.t. teams combing through his house. during these moments, they didn't know where tsarnaev was or whether he was carrying explosives on his body. beck got a chill just knowing about it. >> knowing they had him surrounded and so close to our neighborhood it made us think that he might have been here at nighttime and they flushed him out into that area. >> reporter: vivian stevens lives by herself also very close to the house where tsarnaev was corn cornered. >
surveillance by law enforcement officers. as you mentioned he was intubated and sedated with serious injuries. as the investigation continues the focus today is on what charges he will face and when. one week after two deadly bombs exploded in downtown boston, killing three and injuring 183 people, the only surviving suspect remains in serious condition at beth israel deaconess medical center. as federal prosecutors prepare to bring charges against him, law enforcement sources say dzhokhar tsarnaev is unable to talk after a gunshot wound to the neck. exactly when he suffered this injury is still unknown. >> this is a very complex investigation, and it's hard to say exactly how he received that injury. there was certainly a shoot-out in watertown. there were explosives thrown. so that's being looked into right now. it's hard to say exactly how it occurred. >> reporter: we're learning more about the tense moments right before tsarnaev's arrest. this aerial video shows infrared images of him hiding out on a boat in the backyard of a home in watertown. according to a law enforcement source close
community and the attacks are impossible for the federal law enforcement community to stop. so how to make ourselves more resilient? the steps we need to take are not that sexy. we need to upgrade our transit systems and infrastructure so as to make them less vulnerable to attacks. for example, flynn notes the u.s. navy has invested more in protecting the single port of san diego that is home to the pacific fleet than the department of homeland security has invest ed in the ports of ls angeles, long beach, san francisco, oakland, seattle, and tacoma combined, upon which a bulk of the u.s. economy relies. we must strengthen recovery in the event of a biological attack, which is still the most worrying threat out there. we need to make sure that the public understands the nature of these threats and how it can help identify and respond to them. above all, it needs to understand how not to respond to them. when bad things happen, it's easy to react out of fear, emotion and anger. let's hope that in boston this week we begin to chart a different course. for more on this, you can read my column
questioning him since yesterday. there is some form of communication between law enforcement and the suspect we believe in writing. pamela brown is outside the hospital for us, she's joining us now. what is the latest on tsarnaev's condition? >> reporter: the latest is that he remains here at beth israel deaconess medical center in serious condition. he is still in the intensive care unit handcuffed to his bed 24/7 monitoring by law enforcement officers. we are told that he is intubated and sedated with a gunshot wound to the neck. so it appears that he is still pretty out of it. wolf. >> doctors are telling us that tsarnaev could put something -- could be getting something that's described as a sedation holiday. i know you've been checking with medical personnel over there. what does that mean? >> reporter: well, i've been talking with our medical correspondent elizabeth cohen and she tells me that essentially this means doctors can decrease the sedation for a few minutes to a few hour so is that doctors or authorities would be able to communicate with the patient. we've seen this before it
. pipe bombs, all the ingredients to build more bombs. i guess the suspicion is this is what law enforcement authorities have told me over the past few days. these two brothers if they would have gotten away with it, they were going to do more of this down the road. >> i think you're absolutely right, wolf. it was actually another side to that coin. either they were going to do more and that's what the other explosives were for, or perhaps when we are aware now there was a third pressure cooker bomb. was there in fact a third perpetrator who was supposed to join them on the day of the boston marathon? was that bomb built for that person to put in place at the same time? while we optimistically are hopeful we have accounted for everybody who departed this attack on the marathon, we can't yet rule it out. those other explosives could have other explanations, other perpetrators or other attacks. >> i'm going to bring tom fuentes into the conversation in a moment. where did they get the explosives, where did they pay for the explosives, questions we're going to continue to explore as
counter terrorism officer. we are hearing from local law enforcement that looks like the suspects were working alone. and that came from watertown police chief. he knows a lot of information, but can we say that at this point? >> congratulations to him and his officers, fantastic job, textbook job really. that's certainly the hope of everyone that they were operating alone, but i know that the fbi and others are concerned about the other explosives, for example, that were found in the apartment of the two brothers. >> how do you account for those, for the pressure cooker, the other weapons and all that stuff. >> exactly. it begs the question were they planning additional attacks? the third pressure cooker bomb they used in the pursuit, was that supposed to be deployed by a third person the day of the marathon? these are unanswered questions that i know law enforcement is working hard to try to resolve. >> could profiling have made a difference in this case? how do you determine if they were part of a larger cell? >> profiling is kind of a bad word, we don't like profiling. >> but you h
will release that videotape in a court of law. they've described it in extensive detail. that's going to be powerful, powerful evidence in a potential trial. tom, thanks very much. let's recap quickly the surviving suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, now facing federal charges, among them use gd and conspiring to 0 use a weapon of mass destruction rulgting in death. let's bring in our senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin. jeffrey, what happens next? >> what happens next is that the case will be presented to a grand jury. prosecutors will begin presenting evidence, leading to an indictment. i think the process is going to slow down a great deal. remember, this crime was only a week ago. the government is going to have to assemble a lot of scientific evidence trying to tie material that could be connected to the defendant, to the bomb itself. this is complicated stuff. i think it's going to be months in the grand jury until a final indictment is ready to be presented probably. and then at that point the case will be presented to a trial judge, and there will be motions and then a trial. >> he no
is come forward with a new structure and to articulate how the rule of law will support protecting the country in this new threat environment. there wasn't a case for treating this brother as an enemy combatant and i think it was very premature for my senate colleagues to call for him to be treated that way. >> congressman, thank you very much. >>> up next the attorney for american wife of tamerlan tsarnaev said she had no knowledge of the attacks. does that add up? and the destructive nature of the pressure cooker bomb and what can be done to stop them? we have a special investigation. omnipotent of opportunity. you know how to mix business... with business. and you...rent from national. because only national lets you choose any car in the aisle. and go. you can even take a full-size or above. and still pay the mid-size price. i could get used to this.
